RFID Healthcare Consortium unveils plans for Intelligent Hospital

The RFID in Healthcare Consortium plans to unveil a demonstration Intelligent Hospital at a new medical trade center being built in Nashville. The group will lease 80,000 square feet from the Nashville Medical Trade Center to house the Intelligent Hospital, designed to be an educational tool to show hospital administrators how RFID, RTLS and other wireless technologies can be integrated to bring savings to healthcare facilities.

The facility will open its doors sometime during the second quarter of 2014.

“It is going to be a demonstration of a real hospital integrating technologies like medical devices, RFID, RTLS, and medicine administration,” says Dr. Paul Frisch, president and chief technology officer of the RFID in Healthcare Consortium.

“The purpose of the facility is to demonstrate how all these technologies fit together to provide solutions to improve patient care, patient safety, optimize work flow and operational procedures.”

The RFID in Healthcare Consortium has leased 80,000 square feet of space for its Intelligent Hospital demo.

The custom built facility will showcase RFID in the healthcare, assisted living and nursing home industries. Dr. Frisch, who is also associated with the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, says that the facility is the only demonstration project in the world integrating multiple companies products and services to improve patient care, safety and operating efficiencies.

The healthcare technology incubator will be unveiled in three phrases, including The Intelligent Hospital,  The Center of Excellence, and International Technology Pavilions that are destined to attract healthcare decision makers from around the world.

The Intelligent Hospital will mimic the actual environments of a hospital including registration, surgical services, emergency rooms, and critical care units. In order to demonstrate “best in breed” technology capabilities surrounding  the intelligent hospital, various technologies will be integrated to provide automated solutions such as real-time patient information that is sent to mobile devices from the operating room, intensive care unit, ambulatory/step-down and emergency department rooms, all coordinated through a central “war room.”

Frisch, whose role at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is to evaluate new and evolving technologies and their potential application within the medical center, says that RFID can have a profound impact on healthcare, including helping to reign in out of control healthcare costs.

“Any optimization in supplies and work flow translates directly to savings of healthcare dollars,” he says, noting that RFID has two major areas of focus – the inventory and supply chain management, and overall hospital work flow.

“RFID can provide tremendous potential for cost savings in the hospital environment by managing equipment and making sure the right  equipment is at the right place at the right time,” he says.

“The other major area will be work flow. RFID and RTLS will, for the first time, enable you to provide metrics on how things are happening, such as how quickly staff respond, and how much time they spend with a patient. This is information that was very hard to get in the past. So RTLS and RFID will be able to put together time solutions and optimize work flows and processes, which will provide significant benefits in the hospital.”
